Ground-level ozone in Kyiv for the episode of its high concentration in August 2000 is simulated with the model of urban air pollution UAM-V. The study of total ozone over Kyiv and of its concentration changes with height in the troposphere is made on the basis of ground-based observations with the infrared Fourier-spectrometer at the Main Astronomical Observatory of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine as a part of the ESA-NIVR-KNMI project no 2907. In 2008, the satellite Aura-OMI data OMO3PR on profiles of the atmosphere ozone became available. The data include the ozone content in the lower layer of the atmosphere, beginning in 2005. They can be used for the evaluation of the ground-level ozone concentrations in all cities of Ukraine. Some statistical investigation of ozone air pollution in Kyiv and medical statistics data on respiratory system diseases is carried out with the application of the «Statistica» package. The regression analysis, prognostic regression simulation, and retrospective prognosis of the epidemiological situation with respect to respiratory system pathologies in Kyiv during 2000-2007 are performed.
